Perfect!
It was becoming increasingly difficult for me to walk with the pain caused by hallux rigidus on my right foot. Since I did not want to have surgery, my only other option was an orthotic. Before going the custom route, I decided to try the turf toe plate (graphite) sold by My Foot Shop.  Wow, almost instantaneously, I was able to walk without pain. This was two years ago.  I strongly recommend this product.

Turf Toe Plates
Talked to my doc about hallux rigidus that he diagnosed years ago.  He said I wasn't really a very good candidate for surgery and referred me here to try the toe plates.  I should have done this years ago.  Many years of suffering have been alleviated with these little guys.

Love!
Nice shoes are important to me, and when I was recently diagnosed with hallux rigidis I despaired that I would have to wear ugly shoes.  I just bought a fancy pair of over-the-knee boots (low heeled), and with this plate inside I can walk comfortably.  I'm going to order more so I don't have to switch it in and out of my shoes too much.  This plate is wonderful!

Turf toe
I have worn boots wish these plates for 2 was they truly are amazing.
I have no pain in my feet.
With that being said I am on my feet all day so they are worked
I have already worn down to the webbing on plated at the great toe joint.they also have cut a groove aroundo perimeter of my new boots purchased day I got the plates between plates and boots I've spent $450. I hope I can afford to use them the rate of wear is way faster than what online descriptions suggest.
It is great having no pain in my feet but if it costs me a new set every couple months I cannot afford to use them
My family needs to eat!

From hobbling to hiking
These turf toe plates have changed my life!  I was a ballet dancer.  I NEED exercise to stay sane.  If I'm not dancing, I have to walk quickly to feel invigorated and happy.  It got to the point that I was in so much pain that I couldn't walk the supermarket aisles without wincing.  I didn't believe anything would help me.  Then a friend recommended looking on your website.  I LOVE these inserts.  I wear them every single day in various shoes - from sneakers, to Merrell clogs, to Ugg boots.  I have figured out what insole to put on top of them in the various shoes.  I am only sorry they don't fit in my fancy shoes!  They have made all the difference in the world for me.  Now I can walk quickly while hiking or while grocery shopping.  I'm thinking of getting another pair so I don't have to switch them around so much between shoes.

Reduced the pain of walking
I have arthritis/Hallux rigidus. I put this in a slight rocker sole and it has help decrease the pain of walking. I find this works better for me than the full spring plate, I think because my other toes can still bend and that helps keep the big toe joint immobile.

Even less pain when placed in "rocker sole" shoes
I am new to orthotic inserts and so I tried a number of different inserts for Hallux Rigidus. This pair was put into a mild rocker sole shoe and helped lessen the pain of the big toe joint even more. This combination has become my favorite pair of shoes. I like the insert because it is rigid and thin and allows for a more comfortable insert to be used on top of it.

Did its job
I had my first metatarsal replaced and have osteoarthritis in my big toe joint. Long walks are painful. My doctor recommended a carbon graphite plate. This one fits my shoe and foot well and has reduced the pain so I can take longer walks.

No time for surgery, this is next best thing
planning a 120-mile trek in Europe and a marathon the next month and then was dianosed with turf toe. I thought I simply had arthritis but in fact x-ray showed a major bone spur. No time for surgery before these two events, so purchased these inserts. Have done several 10-plus mile hikes, up and down, in these and so far so good. I can still feel the toe, but there's no major swelling and I'm hopeful. Will report back when I return from Europe and this big hike.

Hope to save left foot from painful surgery
Arthritis destroyed right toe joint & had to have an artificial joint which is not going well 8 years later. Hope to avoid same degeneration on left side (it is getting there but want to avoid surgery that will fuse the joint. Immobilizing the toe is better than the surgery to do so and will have to have the additional immobilization that these plates provide. I've been wearing them non-stop in three different pairs of shoes with no complaints. I recommend for turf toe issues. These are better than the doctor-prescribed ones that I wear on the right foot. I may get 1 more for the right foot.

These Plates Are Not Carbon Graphite!
These plates are made from cheap fiber glass. If they were carbon fiber you would not be able to reshape them with heat as they would delaminate. False advertising!

Work great but a gamble...
For me, they are working very well. I have turf toe and sesamoiditis (one removed) and I bought these to go in my Rugby cleats.

My only complaint is that if you modify these with a grinder or file, they are non-refundable. This makes sense as they cannot be resold. The problem is that you can't even fit them into a pair of shoes (I wear wide fit Adidas cleats) without modifying them first.

So, as I say, they are working for me but don't expect to be able to try them first because they are WAY too wide in the heel and mid-foot to fit into a pair of shoes without immediate modification voiding the return policy.

Really helped me
I have Hallux Rigidis in both feet. Had surgery on my right to make some room between the joint.  I also had the left one cleaned up. Without these i cannot walk very far without feeling the pain. It is one of the better solution i have come across and believe me i spent hundreds looking for something that worked. I would recommend getting one for each foot. If not you well be off balance and have other problems.

Turf Toe Plates
I was skeptical at first but, so thankful I purchased this product. It has been a life saver. I needed something to keep my big toe from bending and this does the trick. I would recommend this to anyone who has big toe pain.

Great Buy
This is perfect for turf toe as it takes the pressure off of the big toe and prevents the toe from bending backwards with every step. It also includes good arch support to further aid in healing. The insert really is as hard as they say so make sure to put a sole over the insert or else your foot will begin to hurt from the pressure from your weight. After putting the insert below the sole this was a perfect product.

Buy in pairs!
I initially bought just one, for my 'problem foot' and quickly realized that if you do any sort of extended activity, you need one in each shoe to keep your body aligned. Well worth the money - this is one tough insert and I like being able to move it from one shoe to another, depending on my needs.  It can be hard to manipulate the insert because it is very, very stiff, but it definitely has relieved my pain during motion, and has allowed me to wear footwear I already own that I could no longer wear (due to pain in my big toe joint).  Also, what a great economical option versus going to the orthotics store for a 'custom' fit. I am sure that as I keep active and keep aging, I will be buying more products from myfootshop.com  Thanks also for the excellent customer service!

Great product!
I have Hallux Rigidis and recently bought the turf toe plate.  I love it!  I can move it into many of my shoes and it subtly but very effectively supports my toe joint.  Make sure you read all the great information about the product and follow the recommendations about sizing.  I highly recommend it!

Turf toe plates
I've had some symptoms of hallux limitus for several years now but it has recently gotten a bit worse.  I really noticed it as cross country ski season began.  It seems like the range of motion necessary had really stirred up my pain.  
I order the turf toe plates to specifically fit into my ski boots.  They've worked well and rally decreased the pain that I've had.  When I know I'm going to be particularly active, I'll also drop them into my tennis shoes.
I would recommend these to anyone who is active with hallux limitus pain.

Highly recommended
I have terrible osteoarthritis at the base of my left big toe with the same starting on the right. I opted for steroid injection and orthotics before surgery. These orthotics are the bomb! They also help my arch and overall health of my feet. I didn't have to alter them -- they fit great -- but I could see how easy it would be to do so if necessary. Great investment. The doc gave me a 2 mos to try and after 2 mos I cancelled my follow-up appointment -- "No problems!"

Turf Toe Plate
These Turf Toe Plates have helped me a lot - I have gotten back to walking and running without pain.  When i was first diagnosed with hallux limitus I though my trail running days were over.  Because of my work I really can't take the time for the surgery.  Even though my doctor said that I needed it, I just can't take weeks to heal.  I use my turf toe plates in both my work and running shoes.  They transfer really easily with no issue.  Thanks.

turf toe plate
I tried one for my right foot which is the worst and I wanted something to put in my crocs and wear around the kitchen. It was okay but very hard and I think needs the dancers pad attached. That then raises the height and means my spurs on top of the joint are rubbing in the shoe. So I'm really no better off and have gone back to wearing my joggers that have a forefoot rocker plus my modified orothotics. I'm okay just being around the house all day but if I go shopping or try to walk for 2 - 3 miles I'm in dreadful pain so I've decided to go ahead with the joint fusion in 2 weeks. Dreading the convalescence and not being able to get around for so long. Rosie

They work, but they break and ruin shoes
I've had two pairs of these. They used to be around $60 for a pair, which was nice. One side of my first pair broke and they wouldn't replace just one of them so I got a new pair. One of them broke again and, quite honestly, I don't have a ton of money to throw around right now, especially not 50 for one when I paid 60-70 not too long ago.

They did make my foot feel better, after adding some sort of padding because they will dig into your feet on the sides. I was able to wear some cheep shoes that I didn't care about but looked good. You can't care about them because these things will also dig right through the sides of your shoes.

These weren't bad for a year, but after breaking and ruining shoes and digging into my feet, I think I'll start looking into another option. WARNING! Really think about how worth it is to you to spend $50 on something that will most likely break in 6-8 months.

Turf Toe Plate - Carbon Graphite - Molded
I have had three surgeries on my fifth metatarsal and a high arch. I ordered this to wear in my cleat for lacrosse. I found it uncomfortable for my first metatarsal but it relieved some of the discomfort from my fifth metatarsal. If you're having problems with your first metatarsal then I would recommend it. MyFootShop.com customer service was great over the phone. Shipped promptly and easily.

Encouraging!
I've been using these carbon fiber foot plates for about 2 weeks now to help reduce strain in my forefoot when walking/running. At first the arch support felt too high but after 2-3 hours of wear things settled into a perfect level of comfort. I have effectively gotten rid of the pain I once had when exercising (running and hiking) so this is very encouraging, but I still have pain when I'm not actually "stressing" my feet(especially when in bed at night) so I have yet to determine whether these inserts will save me from surgery.

I have a lot of issues which these insoles are not intended to address; I'm wearing these inserts to attempt to postpone a "Moberg Ostotomy" surgery to help relieve hallux rigidus, and the surgery will also clean up bone spurs, bunions, and realign sesamoid bones to proper positioning. (The problem is equivalent in both feet.) My orthopedist is asking me to wait several weeks longer before we determine whether my "pain threshold" is low enough to delay surgery. SO, I think these plates are wonderful and well worth their price given their pain relief, and I hope they will allow me to postpone surgery.

And I must say that shipping is really prompt and the customer service here is awesome!

PS: For those reading this review and wondering how their lifestyle may compare to mine then let me clarify; I know from my above description of my feet that I sound like an obese octogenarian, but I'm an athletic 32 year old female, 5'7" and 122 lbs. I don't over pronate or have any "misalignment" in my gait. Furthermore, I don't abuse my feet with high heels. I have simply enjoyed using my feet for an average of 20 miles running each week for a decade, and/or 4-6 hours hiking on weekends. So, I hope this review helps you make your decision on whether to purchase; these plates should help MOST people (even if they don't help ME avoid surgery). I'm just cursed with really bad feet and grateful for a few walks without pain. :-)

My podiatrist recommended these inserts.  The problem is that they raise my heel enough that the back of my loafers and flats slide off, and my foot rises up out of the shoe bending the toes.  Even lace-up walking shoes don't hang onto my heel completely.  Is it possible to get an orthotic just for the front of the foot?

Unfortunately my the edge of the extension is cutting into the bottem of my big toe. The extensions seem too narrow. Size 10
If I put pads on top my foot will not fit into any of my shoes.

I ordered the carbon graphite plates for my son who plays college ball and was injured in the first game this season with 'turf toe'. After reading the reviews I was hopeful to get him some relief since the season is just beginning. Received an email telling me they were on back order and so I called immediately. My goal was to get them to my son ASAP to see if they would work and allow him to get acclimated before the big Ohio State game. Thalia was incredibly helpful and instantly said she would contact the warehouse and see if she could get a rush put in my order. It was successful-we had them delivered within 2 days and they are helping my son tremendously!! Very happy with the product and customer service!! Highly recommend! Thank you!

I have hallux rigidus, and am very limited in the types of shoes I can wear. After much online research, reading about people who have delayed the need for surgery by many years by the use of rigid orthotics with Morton's extensions, I bought these from myfootshop - wish I had done it years ago! These really work to make an ordinary pair of shoes (as long as the insole can be removed) into a great comfort pair for me.

Hi, ordered a pair, I have been having hallux rigidus (turf toe) for a while, pain in my big toe, didn't know what was causing it, ran across www.myfootshop.com with its great articles, helped me identify my pain and these insoles really help a lot. Running strong and feel good. I looked around and they are priced very good. I totally recommend them, very nice and quite strong. I would not mind if they were a little stiffer, but they work great and have me running way better and with so much less pain. Thank you.

I was devastated when hallux rigidus made running so painful that I stopped doing it. Contemplating surgery to fix the problem my podiatrist recommended this site and these inserts. What a difference! I wear them everyday. I am now ordering more pairs so that I don't have to move my originals among pairs of shoes. I can jog again! And the inserts made my day to day activities more comfortable. Definitely worth the investment-- these inserts have truly changed my life. If they squeak inside your shoes just dust them with some baby powder.

I was not sure this would work for me, because I not been able to tolerate other commercial orthotics (superfeet, etal). I have severe osteo-arthritis in one big toe. But these are great.  I wear them both in "regular" shoes (best for me if you can remove the insole and stick them underneath) and for running.  It makes a huge difference for me in terms of both comfort during the day and lack of pain after runs.

I halix rigitus in both toes that cause pain with normal walking. After reading the description I thought that the turf toe plate would help so I ordered a pair. The stiff plate under my toes did help with the pain, but the arch was much too high and caused disconfort. I followed the instructions enclosed with the plates and heated them to 260 degrees in an unsuccessful attempt to lower the arch. The plates collapsed to flat and are now useless. I would not recommend these plates.

After being diagnosed with Hallux Rigidus several weeks ago and being recommended to get $600 custom orthotics by my doc., I decided to "wait and see." After being in great pain for several days, I found myfootshop.com on the web and ordered the turf toe plates. These plates have been like a miracle cure! After wearing them for several days, all my toe joint pain disappeared. Very, very happy! And ready to return to soccer soon after thinking that I might have to give up playing. Thank you!

I am a runner who has had degrading performance owing to increased rigidity of my toe which was throwing off all my biomechanics.  These helped a great deal.  I modified mine by heating them according to the directions, then putting them in my racing flats, placing the insole on top and the grabbing my forefoot and bending as much as it would allow while the plate cooled so I could increase the rocker and coax as much roll-off out of them as possible.  I also cut the heel of the insole off so I could keep the heel height low, but today I am going to actually try cutting the heel off the plate so the landing will be softer but having a full insole over it.  Then I will mold them with the plate as far forward as possible.  These so far have really, really helped me, but worth trying to modify for performance to reduce weight and keep the same road feel and heel-toe drop/heel height of a racing flat

Makes some shoes wearable. I worry about wearing it all the time since I think it is good for my toes to still have to extend once in a while.

My order was fulfilled and delivered promptly. I had been struggling with turf toe and decided to give these a try based on research I had done suggesting a plate with Morton's extension. Been about two weeks so far and doing much better...meaning pain and swelling have subsided substantially.

I have severe hallux rigidus and am trying to put off surgery. I couldn't find shoes with a stiff enough sole to wear to work and the inserts have helped cut down on the pain.

My 17 year old son requires surgery to repair fractured sesmoid and dislocated big toe-- he has been in pain for more than 6 months before this was diagnosed. We got the turf toe plates at recommendation of the surgeon, and my son is already walking without pain. Not sure whether he will continue to use after surgery, but worth it just to have these few weeks prior to surgery, pain free. I would love if this had been offered as a single purchase rather than a pair. Fast service, courteous on phone with my sizing question. I hope I don't have to use you again, but know where to go if I do!!! thnx!

They will need to be heated and molded to proper shape before you can wear them. I heated mine in the oven (255 degrees) and immediately put them in the shoes, then put the shoes on and stood on them until they cooled. It was not uncomfortably hot to do so. They are reasonably comfortable to wear in THOSE shoes but they are not comfortable in my other shoes - apparently they can be conformed to ONE pair at a time; they are not likely to conform to your other shoes. Of course, you can re-heat them and conform them to some other pair if you wish. A very thin insert over them might take some of the cutting edge feeling away, especially around the cut-out where the big toe goes.

Turf Toe Plates - Carbon Graphite - Molded
A huge help that greatly relieves the pain of severe arthritis in the primary joint of the big toe. I'm on my feet at work all day, and adding these to my fairly stiff work boots allow me to do my job almost pain-free. There's a lot of arch support as well, which felt odd at first, but also seems to help prevent foot fatigue. These are not a total solution – I'll be having surgery to fuse the toe joint in a few months – but they are allowing me to live reasonably comfortably until that time. I only wish I'd have found these plates sooner -- to protect the toe from further damage and to save myself a lot of discomfort.

Amazing how these have eliminated the pain in the basal joints of my big toes.  Also amazing how little space they take up in the shoes themselves.

Unfortunately they're very hard and uncomfortable for the rest of my feet.  If my total body weight was about 20 pounds, I probably wouldn't mind, but it takes really thick insoles to make them bearable.

This is my second pair.  I have them in both my sneakers and my shoes. I can no longer wear shoes without them. They really keep my feet pain free.   They are also more long wearing than the $400 ones prescribed by my orthopedist and they work better!!

Planning a long walking tour and needed toe support or an operation. Thanks for having the toe plate.

I love these.  I have been having trouble with turf toe for over 6 months.  These plates are perfect for my needs.  I walk a lot and do kickboxing.  Keeping my toes more rigid really decreases my pain and I don't have to be as careful in my activities because the plates do it for me.

Thank you!!  One thing you could improve upon is how long it takes to get them.  Sooner would be better.

I have painful hallux limitus and have to wear rigid sole shoes.  I gave away most of my flexible shoe, but wasn't able to part with a few of my favorites.  With these turf toe plates, I can now wear my flex sole shoes!

Service was very reliable and order accurately filled.
Unfortunately the plates hurt my feet so much that I had to remove them after a short test. There were instructions on how to modify the plates with a heat gun, but there were not details showing when this would be needed, and I couldn't see how that would have helped in my case. Bottom line - these may not be for everyone but are probably worth a try.

In the summer I like to wear loose shoes like boat shoes.  These are thin enough that I've been able to wear my boat shoes and loafers again.  Sure, my toe still hurts a bit, but at least I can walk again.  And I can still wear the shoes of my choice.

I have osteo arthritis in my great toe (halix rigitus) and have discomfort with normal walking.  I've discovered that stiff soled shoes work better for me and the carbon fiber insert is a good solution that I can use with almost any shoe.  One note, when I received the insert, the arch support area was too tall and uncomfortable.  With some coaching from MyFootShop on using a hair dryer to soften the material, I was able to re-shape the insert to fit my contour.  Now it's working just fine.
